This year’s LED lightshow was carefully chosen from hundreds of submissions, and according to organisers, the first show celebrates the spiritual value of Ramadan with an inspiring display of UAE-based artist Art Noor's work.
Noor’s painting was inspired by the 99 names of Allah, and took an impressive 15 years to complete.
Some of the names of Allah include:
- Al Rahman; The Compassionate
- Al Rahim; The Merciful
- Al Malek; The Lord
- Al Qudoos; The Perfect
- Al Salam; The Peace and Safety
